DAY 1
ARRIVE IN JOHANNESBURG

Arrive at Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport. From here, depart to Victoria Falls. Upon arrival at Victoria Falls Airport, you will be met by a representative and transferred to your hotel.

After checking in, depending on when you arrive, you have time to relax. In the late afternoon, make your way to reception where a representative will collect you for your Cruise. 

Cruise the Victoria Falls Zambezi River. Shearwater operates a variety of cruises on the upper stretches of the Zambezi River above the Victoria Falls. Cruise where David Livingstone canoed on his quest to discover the falls over 150 years ago. Soak up the spectacular scenery offering unrivalled photographic opportunities of this iconic African river which is home to abundant wildlife and an incredible variety of birds. It is not unusual to spot families of elephant swimming from island to island or to get close to the ferocious Nile crocodile and pods of hippo in their natural habitat. And there is nothing as beautiful as a Zambezi sunset

The perfect base from which to explore one of the World's Seven Natural Wonders, the majestic Victoria Falls. Ilala Lodge provides distinguished yet affordable boutique Victoria Falls accommodation in gracious and secluded surroundings. The Ilala Lodge Hotel is ideally situated on the Zimbabwean side of the mighty Zambezi River, where it is the closest hotel to the magnificent Falls. Voted one of the World's Seven Natural Wonders, the Victoria Falls are within easy walking distance for guests, as is the town centre. Ilala Lodge is the perfect spot from which to embark upon a voyage of discovery in one of Africa’s favourite tourist destinations. Here, historical sites, culinary experimentation and a host of activities in pristine natural surroundings are within your reach.

Wild animals, such as warthog and impala, often graze on the hotel lawns, providing exciting entertainment for hotel guests. Restaurant diners, on the other hand, can see and hear the majestic roar of "the smoke that thunders" while they sample Zimbabwe's finest a la carte cuisine at The Palm Restaurant. With tranquil views and an elegant ambience, dinner at the Palm is an experience in and of itself.

Ilala Lodge invites you to discover exceptional hospitality and cheerful service, perfectly located in the warm and inviting heart of Victoria Falls. The Victoria Falls Hotel, popularly known as “the grand old lady of the Falls”, is situated in the Victoria Falls National Park, a world heritage site, and is a member of the exclusive Leading 5 Star Hotels of the World group. It is one of only three 1S0-accredited hotels in Zimbabwe.

The Edwardian-style five star hotel, built in 1904, was recently redecorated and refurbished and now combines the charm of the old with the convenience of the new. Set in lush tropical gardens with lily ponds, palm trees and semi-tropical shrubs, it provides the tranquillity and seclusion that many guests seek. The famous Victoria Falls are just a ten-minute walk away using the hotel’s private pathway, and “the smoke that thunders” or “Mosi-O-Tunya” in the local dialect, is clearly audible and visible from this luxurious landmark.

DAY 2
VICTORIA FALLS 
After breakfast you will be collected from the Hotel for your guided tour of the Falls. 

A knowledgeable guide will take you on an unforgettable experience through the Victoria Falls rainforest, a journey that not only affords a view of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World but provides a great deal of interesting facts about the geology, wildlife and history of Africa’s most famous landmark. Listen to magical tales of local legend while you enjoy the constant spray from the “The Smoke that Thunders”.

The Shearwater guide will also help ensure the best photographic opportunities of this breathtaking World Heritage Site. At the end of the tour, Shearwater’s own Rainforest Cafe provides an ideal place to stop and refuel before your next adventure.

DAY 4 & 5

DAY 6
After breakfast, you will depart on your Shared Light Aircraft transfer to Maun Airport. Once at Maun Airport, you will depart on your onwards flight to Johannesburg, to connect with your outbound flight.

Botswana’s magnificent Okavango Delta, the world’s largest inland delta, is a maze of deep lagoons, large lakes and hidden, meandering channels. During the annual flood season, the Delta covers a vast area of over 16 000 sq. km. before shrinking to less than 9000 sq. km. in the dry season. Trapped in a basin of parched Kalahari Desert sand, the freshwater oasis attracts wildlife that depends on the permanent waters of this unique environment. 

Camp Okavango, an enchanting and authentically African safari camp is situated on the remote Nxaragha Island. This hidden treasure, in the heart of the permanent Okavango Delta, assures its guests of an unparalleled year-round water wilderness experience. 

Water-based activities are conducted by experienced professional guides who will expertly navigate guests through the many meandering, reed-lined waterways. Roam the vast expanses of water from the comfort of a modern motorboat or explore the intricacies of the Okavango Delta the quiet, old-fashioned way, in the traditional mokoro (dugout canoe). 

For those wanting to get a little closer to nature, guided bush walks are conducted on a number of the nearby islands, offering an opportunity to track some of the larger land-based species that inhabit this water wilderness. Birding opportunities are outstanding and anglers may pit their skill against Bream and Tiger Fish. Camp Okavango is a water-based camp and game-drive activities, using safari vehicles, are not possible. 

The prime location of Camp Xakanaxa (pronounced Ka-ka-na-ka) on the banks of the Khwai River on the Xakanaxa Lagoon, in the heart of the Moremi Game Reserve, makes it one of the very few safari camps that offer guests an authentic, year-round Okavango Delta land and water safari experience. The ancient riverine forests, open savannah, serpentine channels and seasonal floodplains that surround the camp make for a varied habitat of exceptional fauna and flora. The camp is one of few offering a year-round land and water game-viewing experience, in open 4x4 safari vehicles or powerboats. The diverse habitat ensures prolific sightings of Elephant, Buffalo, Hyena, Giraffe, Hippo, Wildebeest, Kudu, Lechwe, Lion and Leopard, among many others. Birding is spectacular, especially in the spring and summer months when the migrants are breeding.

Safari activities are conducted by licensed guides eager to share their in-depth knowledge and impart the treasured secrets of this great wilderness.
